(BY: JUN FELICIANO) (Words of Enlightenment)

NOT all the blessings for mankind fcome from God. There are blessings enjoyed by men, especially the rich not believing in God, that derive from Satan, Lucifer the devil.

THE wealth blessed by the Father Almighty is being stressed in the Bible: “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 28: 1-2).

WHISTLE BLOWER HAS BLUE BOOK

A supposed self-confessed ‘whistle blower’ is said poised to come out in the open if ever invited to the Sen. Cynthia Villar committee probe body that’ll look into the alleged rampant rice smuggling activities in the city.

 A TOP source claiming to have access to the ‘whistle blower’(a rice trader), revealed last week that if ever this ‘whistle blower’ will be given the chance to speak up in the Villar investigative committee hearing, a ‘blue book’ that he’s in possession will reveal it all, as far as those “local leaders” supposedly alluded to in the report, is concerned.

WITH the BBL discussions in Congress under indefinite suspension, due to the Jan. 25 massacre of the 44 members of the PNP Special Action Force(SAF) in Maguindanao, Sen. Villar is strongly rumored to proceed with her rice smuggling probe in ZC.

THE lady senator who heads the committee on Food and Agriculture in the Lower House, was slated to conduct her probe hearing on the alleged rampant rice/  sugar smuggling activities in ZC, but was deferred in the light of the more significant issue—the BBL.

“HOWEVER, with the BBL under suspension now, Sen. Villar might push through with this rice smuggling probe as earlier scheduled here,” a top source from Congress strongly hinted.

SIBULAO DAM PROJECT A FLOP

THE council committee on Agriculture chaired by Dist. 2 Councilor Mike Alvar III conducted its committee hearing yesterday morning to lend ears to the complaints lodged vs. the supposed defective NIA-initiated Sibulao irrigation dam project in Vitali Dist.

ACCORDING to the Alvar committee findings, the problematic Sibulao irrigation dam project was started back in l996 to purportedly serve the hundreds of farmers in the said area.

BUT, yet it has been there for so long without servicing, at all, the farmers in the said area, according to the many folks from there.

NO less than the Brgy. Capt. of Vitali, Kap Chito Alavar expressed his grievances against the NIA project in his village, that up to now, such a defective dam has never been able to serve his barangay.

TO quote him saying, during the committee hearing( in Chabacano): “Hinde’ lang cay ni un balde de agua nuay ta llega na dimiyo barangay, sino maskin picha’ de agua nuay kame aprobecha.”

DIST. 1 Councilor Luis “Noning” Biel III, the vice chair of the said committee, urged that the defective Sibulao irrigation project be thoroughly rehabilitated by pouring the right sufficient funding, in one time, and not by piecemeal, so that such project be well done and be of better service to all the farmers in the said area.

DIST. 1 Councilor Charlie Mariano deplored the flawed Sibulao irrigation dam project and poised to pass a strongly-worded resolution that the faulty Subulao dam project (he described as “white elephant”) be seriously looked into by top government officials on the national leave, and in this case, directly address such concern, to the country’s Agriculture Czar, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, to fully develop the said project, so as to truly serve the numerous farmers in the Vitali District.

ITS chair, Councilor Alavar enjoined the NIA top personnel to submit all their documents to his committee, as he said he plans the botched dam project in the city’s east-coast, to look for another site in nearby site, where there’s a better ground foundation, unlike its present site that’s even admitted by the NIA experts as “unstable,” hence, the unfinished Sibulao dam project certainly needs continuous large funding up to now. THE Sibulao irrigation dam has already cost approximately P100 million from funds, mostly allocated by the city gov’t of Zbga, according to Councilor Alavar.

BUT, NIA’a estimated spent funding for the Sibulao irrigation dam is much lower—to the tune of only P50 million, more or less, as revealed by its top brass when invited to the said committee hearing.

 ALSO present during  yesterday morning’s committee hearing were Dist. 2 Councilor BG Guingona IV top officials of NIA-9, City Agriculturist’s Office , barangay officials of affected villages and a host of affected farmers.(30)
